We counted down the days until we left for our "get away".
2: When we got to Charlotte, Jerry received the next set of post cards with many choices on them: Paris, Disney World, Canada, the Beach, and the Grand Canyon. Jerry chose the right one! Somewhere he had always wanted to go--The Grand Canyon!
